Fête de la Madeleine

Châteaurenard - Provençal Tradition - Du 29 juillet au 9 août - Free

It was to celebrate the development of irrigation in the region, giving rise to market gardening and fruit growing, that Mary Magdalene’s cart was created in the 17th century, and its has been paraded every year on the 1st Sunday in August since then.
For the entire festival period, bull running, Camargue bull games, a fairground, drinks stands, exhibitions, etc.
